Identity Management for Higher Education: 3-day workshop

Condatis Group Limited

In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to implement our identity solutions within any higher education institution’s IT landscape.

This workshop will demonstrate how your institution can implement an identity solution fit for centralised, decentralised and hybrid scenarios putting student experience at the forefront of the solution. We offer Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions based on Microsoft Azure technology. Our tailored solutions integrate with various systems, combining decentralised and centralised systems. We are a world-leading identity firm and Microsoft Solutions Partner with expertise in Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2C and Entra Verified ID.

Is your University making the right first impression?

Every digital service you offer is a virtual front door to your University. While the opportunities to provide an excellent experience to new applicants are vast – the risk to your security can become even more extensive. Universities strive to enhance the experiences of their internal users (staff and students to the University) and their external users (such as new applicants and visitors). Identity solutions such as Azure AD B2C can help improve the onboarding process of new students through authentication and additional layers of security with biometric advancements. These methods increase the desirability of the University in a competitive market, help decrease administrative overheads, and reduce manual effort, resulting in a considerable cost benefit for Universities.

Future proofing, decentralisation and Microsoft Entra Verified ID

As part of your identity roadmap planning, ensuring the solutions you implement are future-proofed, robust and scalable is essential. Using Entra Verified ID means that students can be supported throughout their entire student lifecycle. Together, we’ll delve into the world of decentralised identity and show you the art of the possible when implementing this for your University.

How we help you to achieve this

We work with Universities to cut through the complexity by undertaking a systematic review of identity within your institution. Our workshops will provide an assessment and supporting documentation based on Microsoft best practices to identify your current state. You will receive a prioritised set of actionable recommendations outlining the benefits to your University and highlighting the Azure products and features already in your systems that you can leverage further. Wherever you are on your identity journey, this assessment will help you understand which areas need the most attention for effective identity management. We will identify the gaps in your system and advise on the next steps so you can take action. This bespoke assessment will look for vulnerabilities, spot areas for process improvements, and offer insights to enhance user experience.

Who should attend the workshops

The workshops are designed for Universities who have Azure Active Directory in place and who are in the discovery phase of their IAM journey. They are an opportunity to explore a range of identity solutions and technologies. You will have the opportunity to bring along your architecture and security teams to collaborate with our team of identity experts and strategists to create a detailed, bespoke implementation plan suitable for your institution.
